    I was wondering what everyones opinion on a body lift was. I am restoring a 75 blazer and have to replace the body bushings; so i thioght while i was down there i would put a 2" body lift on. I dont want a large gap between the body and the bumper, so any one with any pics of a blazer with a 2 inch body lift on it would greatly be appreciated.

    2" isn't too bad, I have one and like it for the most part so far, if nothing else get the 1" from ord, that would be a happy compromise.

    Do you have, or do you plan on getting a suspension lift ??? Personally I'd go for the ORD 1" body lift, + poly mounts.

    I have a 3" and I hate it basically. Takes a lot of work to make it look right with lifting the bumpers and can cause some cooling issues from the cut/missing shroud. I can post pics of my K5 before I lifted the bumpers to match the body and after..if you would like.
